WONDERFUL!

Do you want great food? How about throwing in a great view of the San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge and the S. F. skyline? (From almost every table!) BUT WAIT... there's more. Can you handle TWO champagne Mimosas - EACH? Prompt seating? Truly friendly service? Ample parking? Linen... read more

We did their early pre fixe 5-6PM menu. Don't know if that's why we were rushed through. Made a 5:30 reservation. Drinks were not exactly as ordered, but acceptable. Had salad put on the table and with the first forkful had the entrée put in its place - that was awkward. Salad was delightful, what a shame. Meal was only... More

Went there for a business lunch and it was ok. The service was average, food was average. We ordered their salmon, burgers, crab louie salad and fish and chips. Nothing stood out as far as the food and it was interesting that a piece of chicken was included as part of the fish and chips...chicken of the sea I guess.... More

We, 4 adults and a 6 year old kid, went there for the Champagne Sunday Brunch. The Buffet is enormous. We came early, so we got a window table without having reserved. The Coffee is awful. The Food is average and it is not that cheap. USD 165 plus tip for our Group. But it's the view and the very... More

Surprised that this restaurant was not busier on a lunchtime weekday as easy parking and great view by the bay. Four of us had a delicious lunch, clam chowder, Fish and Chips or the Sea-bass special. All freshly cooked. Very attentive servers too.

Ok the food was mediocre. My Clam chowder was lumpy with flour for example, my hubby's fish and chips were tasty. The servers were great and the margarita was worthy of 5 stars. We has a spicy cucumber lime with Serrano peppers margarita that was really delicious! The view was worth it. Food was pricey because the place is very... More

We took Mom-In-Law for her first visit to San Francisco last weekend. I wanted her to experience the great views from Hs Lordships Restaurant at the end of the Berkeley Marina. I hadn't been there in over 10 years. The place has aged, that's for sure. The carpet is REAL bad but the staff is fantastic. Their coffee is the... More

We went at a time when it wasn't busy at all. The service was prompt and the food was decent. Taking price into consideration, probably average value for quality. The beef and salmon were pretty good, the calamari steak surprisingly good, but the trout and capers not so much. Good view of the Bay.

Value for money, good brunch buffet spread, caters to all ages. fresh waffles made as ordered for kids and kids at heart, try the bread pudding. Cozy little restaurant. Recommended: reserve early and request a table by the window-- the picture windows offer excellent views of the Bay and the famed bridges. Clean surroundings make for an inviting stroll. There...

The beef was tough, the turkey was dry. It isn't that cheap that the quality should be so below average. Not enough staff manning the carvery and there was a dirty cloth involved. Seafood dishes had some imitation crab. On the bright side the view of SF is distant but very wide. From the city to the Golden Gate bridge.... More
